Colvin Run Mill Historic Site in Great Falls soon will be a bit more difficult to reach because of highway construction, Fairfax County Park Authority officials said.
From now through June, all drivers leaving Colvin Run Mill will turn right and proceed to the east end of Colvin Run Road to access eastbound and westbound Route 7 as crews perform utility work and other construction activities at the west end of Colvin Run Road.
Drivers entering the mill on westbound Route 7 still will be able to turn left on to Colvin Run Road at the Route 7/Delta Glen Court/Colvin Run Road intersection (west end of Colvin Run Road). Drivers entering the mill on Route 7 eastbound still will be able to turn right on Colvin Run Road at the Route 7/Carpers Farm/Colvin Run Road intersection.
Colvin Run Mill site manager Julie Gurnee said the Park Authority will place signage to ease visitors’ travels and access to the site.
“Coming from the west, all visitors are able to turn onto Colvin Run Road at the first entrance (Delta Glen) to enter; but to exit to Route 7, visitors will all turn right out of the site to turn onto Route 7 at the Carpers Farm/Route 7 intersection,” Gurnee said.
